## Linear Regression T-test: Formula, Example

Last updated: 7th May, 2024 Linear regression is a popular statistical method used to model the relationship between a dependent variable and one or more independent variables. In linear regression, the t-test is a statistical hypothesis testing technique used to test the hypothesis related to the linearity of the relationship between the response variable and different predictor variables. In this blog, we will discuss linear regression and t-test and related formulas and examples. For a detailed read on linear regression, check out my related blog – Linear regression explained with real-life examples. T-tests are used in linear regression to determine if a particular independent variable (or feature) is statistically significant …

## AIC in Logistic Regression: Formula, Example

Have you as a data scientist ever been challenged by choosing the best logistic regression model for your data? As we all know, the difference between a good and the best model while training machine learning model can be subtle yet impactful. Whether it’s predicting the likelihood of an event occurring or classifying data into distinct categories, logistic regression provides a robust framework for analysts and researchers. However, the true power of logistic regression is harnessed not just by building models, but also by selecting the right model. This is where the Akaike Information Criterion (AIC) comes into play. In this blog, we’ll delve into different aspects of AIC, decode …

## How to Add Rows to DataFrames in R Using dplyr: Examples

Data manipulation is a fundamental aspect of data analysis, and R, with its dplyr package, offers an efficient and readable way to perform such tasks. In my experience working with various datasets, I have often encountered situations where I needed to add rows to an existing DataFrame. The dplyr package, part of the tidyverse collection, makes these tasks intuitive and efficient. In this blog post, I’ll share two common scenarios: adding a single row and adding multiple rows to a DataFrame using dplyr. If you would want to learn about how to add rows to Pandas Dataframe using Python, check out my related post – Pandas Dataframe: How to Add …

## Dummy Variables in Regression Models: Python, R

In linear regression, dummy variables are used to represent the categorical variables in the model. There are a few different ways that dummy variables can be created, and we will explore a few of them in this blog post. We will also take a look at some examples to help illustrate how dummy variables work. We will also understand concepts related to the dummy variable trap. By the end of this post, you should have a better understanding of how to use dummy variables in linear regression models. As a data scientist, it is important to understand how to use linear regression and dummy variables. What are dummy variables in …

I found it very helpful. However the differences are not too understandable for me
